The Makings for a Hummus Taco

Let’s make a hummus taco! I received some Sabra hummus Sabra Hummus samples in the mail, and I knew exactly what to make. The samples included original, caramelized onion, sundried tomatoes, roasted red pepper and jalapeno varieties and am eligible for prizes. I was not compensated for my time.

I have been looking forward to sharing this cool summer recipe idea with you! I was familiar with many of the Sabra hummus dips Sabra Dips but had never seen the jalapeno hummus variety.  When I saw it, I knew instantly that it would make a delicious Summer Mexican Menu here at the Barratt residence! Tacos, burritos and quesadillas are staples at our house at least once or twice a week, so a hummus taco is right up our alley!

In the summer, I don’t like to heat up the kitchen, so this already prepared product made from natural ingredients is a great staple to have on hand! Plus, it will provide me more time for summer fun whether it is in the garden or heading out to a mountain hike, outdoor concert or play. I can also take it on the road for a travel snack.

Sabra jalapeno hummus Sabra Jalapeno Hummus can go great wherever traditional refried beans are used in a recipe. And a great flavor addition to using hummus over refried beans is a delicious nutty flavor from the tahini/sesame seed butter.
